Have I told you all before that styled engagement shoots are my favourites!! Well they totally are!! I love the extra work that goes into them which mean more details and more pretty things!!
If you’re a bride to be and find yourself a little anxious about how your groom is going to react to this whole “picture” thing, you’re not alone. We receive so many emails from brides to be who are worried that their groom won’t be into it and I have great news for you…. you both are way more photogenic than you think!
We are constantly surprising couples by discovering their hidden modeling skills and our most common response from our JNGrooms is “That wasn’t as bad at all! It was actually fun.” Boom! Mission accomplished! When the groom says that taking pictures was FUN, we have done our job well! Your engagement session is supposed to be fun and relaxed and not forced or awkward. As you prepare for your shoot, there are a few things that you can do to help your groom know what to expect.
First of all, I highly recommend sitting down with your guy and showing him 2-3 of your favorite engagement sessions that I have photographed. Spend some time together scrolling through a few blog posts, this will allow him to gauge what his expectations should be. I also recommend that you allow for plenty of time to get to your shoot! There is nothing worse than when a couple shows up late and they have been arguing in the car! That is definitely going to put your groom in a bad mood! Last but not least, remember to have patience with him and don’t assume that he’s not going to have a good time…
I think both of you’ll be surprised how much you will enjoy your session and walk away saying, what was I stressing about, we actually had so much fun?!
